. president obama seems very conflicted about what to do, and i'm not sure i can really blame him, but more and more cities and states are blaming obama care for cutting their government worker jobs and work hours. this ill-advised health care law is likely to cut more private sector jobs than the budget-cutting sequester. all of that and more coming up on "the kudlow report" coming up right now. ♪ ♪ ♪ >>> first up tonight's speaker of the house john boehner says republicans will not shut down the government over obama care. cnbc's john harwood has that story for us. good evening, john. >> reporter: congress returns in just over two weeks to a huge fight over government spending and debt. with no agreement in sight between the white house and congressional republicans, both sides are trying to prepare the ground for the battle and the economic bus tour president obama today tried to rally public opinion against a possibility of a government shutdown aimed at his health care law. most recently there's been threats that we would shut down the government unless we agreed to roll back the

is beginning to take shape around, yes, of course, the repeal of obama care. and last night at a heritage foundation defund obama care event in texas, senator ted cruz tried to rally conservatives. >> what happens next is president obama and harry reid are going to scream and yell those mean, nasty republicans are threatening to shut down the federal government. what has to happen after that is we've got to do something that conservatives haven't done in a long time. we've got to stand up and win the argument. why is it that every reporter in the media and a significant percentage of republicans assume with an impasse that president obama will never, ever, ever give up his principals so republicans have to give up theirs. if you have an impasse, you want to know one side or the other has to blink. how do we win this fight? don't blink! >> by the way, cruz was heckled at that event by people saying they wanted health care as well, but there were more supporters, as he said, than there were hecklers. earlier, though, former u.s. senator jim demint and president of the heritage foundation sa
. he has done it to damascus, now he is doing it here. president obama today drew a red line here at home. any republican who tries to bring this country into the default, fails to pay interest on the national debt is the enemy. there will be no deals, the president says, no talks, no schmoozes, no bedtime stories, no nothing. you are cut off. america will pay its debts. it will not default. it will not destroy its credit in the world. and you can threaten. you can scream and yell, but the united states government will not fail in the bankruptcy because of this economic terrorism you on the right purport to be a political philosophy. well, the secretary of the treasury said it less dramatically this morning, but said it just as clearly. any attempt by the right wing to threaten this country with national default will be met with the strongest response, no deals. bashar al assad in damascus, but against those in this country who would jeopardize the country's financial strength. joining me right now are two political pros, democrat steve mcmahon, and republican john fayry. treasury
joining us. have a great night. >> good evening thank you for being with us president obama and italy's policies are no more coherent united to and a half years ago when he insisted on an mubarak departure from power there clear lack of policy led to his overthrow the muslim brotherhood ascension to power in now and the secular military removal of the egyptian military removal of mohammad morsi and now the deadly clash between security forces and morsi supporters. the white house again today refused to make knowledge whether they will continue to send a to the egyptian government and military that has reportedly killed hundreds of morsi demonstrators since last week but those questions that play in the muslim brotherhood for the torching , looting and destruction with those churches and josh ernest told the white house press corps today that a decision on aid to egypt has been set aside to contrast the white house position at two years ago when mubarak was in power president obama himself for in the end to cut off a billion and a half dollars of aid if his government did not
that the syrian government has used chemical weapons against civilians, president obama has asked the department of defense to prepare a variety of military options in response to the situation in syria. at least two senators are also calling for military action. elizabeth prann is following the latest on that. >> hi, shan n no. president obama and the international community has said the damage has been done. this as they agreed to allow inspectors to the outskirts of the city of damascus where the alleged chemical weapons were deployed. a senior u.s. official says it leads to a lack of credibility which begs the question what action if any will the president make? the officials say the president is waiting to make an informed decision about how to respond. some lawmakers say it is time to take action now. >> we have to act rather quickly. i think the horrific killings of people, murdering his own people and he has been doing it for awhile now, but obviously the gas that was used to kill his own people, i think we have to respond. rehave to respond in -- we have to respond in conjunction with o
been killed within the last 24 hours. president obama made a statement on the deteriorating situation from martha's vineyard earlier today. >> the united states strongly condemns the steps that have been taken by egypt's interim government and security forces. our traditional cooperation cannot continue as usual when civilians are being killed in the streets and rights are being rolled back. as a result, this morning, we notified the egyptian government that we are canceling our biannual joint military exercise which was scheduled for next month. i want to be clear that america wants to be a partner in the egyptian people's pursuit of a better future, but our partnership must also advance the principles that we believe in. >> bob, that was president obama earlier today. you worked at the state department. dealt with a lot of different crises over your time there and have watched many. is the president just caught between a rock and a hard place here and did he put himself in this position? >> i don't think he put himself in a position. it is a rock and hard place. interesting thing he
obama has asked the defense department to prepare options for all contingencies. we have done that. and again, we are prepared to exercise whatever option, if he decides to employ one of those options. >> we have two reports on these new developments. nbc news's kristen welker and amaa reporter also. >>> what's the latest and what are the options being considered. >> reporter: the white house, you're absolutely right, saying there's little doubt that chemical weapons were being used by the assad regime. they're reacting to the fact that the syrian government will let u.n. inspectors into the alleged site of the chemical weapons attack. the white house expressing concern that it could be too little too late. they say that area has been shelled for five straight days. here's a statement from the administration, an administration official, that we just got this morning. this avenue says, quote, at this juncture, any belated decision by the regime to gran access would be considered to late to be credible including because the evidence available has been significantly corrupted as a res
president obama took the oath of office, hasn't it? he's a socialist, a communist, he's a marxist, we've heard it all. low information voters are buying this stuff. what's really bad about it all as we go into year six of president obama, now this white consecutive movement is starting to infiltrate into the legislative process in america and we sit here silent about it? i will not. this is dangerous for the country. and it needs to be directly addressed. governor dalrimble, own up, dude. do you want this stuff in your backyard in leaf, north dakota? is that the north dakota way? get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. will conservatives have the character to condemn racism in america. text to 67622. go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. for more, let's turn to hillary shelten of the naacp and ohio state senator nina turner. >> mr. shelton, it has been 50 years since the march on washington. we all want to feel like we're moving forward. but when stories like this prop up, when i go to alabama and hear these comments, i thin
, beck, or o'reilly. >> my contention is that the obama administration is encouraging parasites to come out and, you know, take as much as they can with no remorse. and this is how a country declines. this is how we become a weak nation. >> so if you need food stamps, you're a parasite. that wasn't exactly his language when he supported billions of dollars to bail out bankers in need. but this is the heartless talk we keep hearing from the right. and bill o'reilly is hardly alone. tea party senator rand paul is comparing the use of food stamps to slavery. in an interview he said access to food and water is not a right, because, quote, once you conscript people and say oh, it's a right, then really you're in charge. it's servitude. you're in charge of me, and i'm supposed to do whatever you want to tell me to do. so if you take food stamps, you're accepting servitude. senator, what about if you're hungry? and it doesn't stop at food stamps. here is what republican congressman dave joyce was caught on tape saying about the unemployed. >> there's three million jobs every month in this coun
increases even before there was such a thing as obama care. if you look at the specific fees cited by u.p.s. as a reason for dropping them they are a pittance compared to what the rise in health care has been. it raises the question to me just because the possibility, because they are saying it's because obama care, maybe it's an opportunity for the company to save some money and pin it on something controversial. >> we should consider that this sort of thing should have been anticipated and very easy to blame the companies but in fact the policy may be flawed. a lot of companies, large franchise companies saying that their franchisees will most likely once obama care kicks in reduce flows fewer hours because of the health care costs. you would think when they were planning -- when they were planning for this they would have anticipated these sorts of things. there's this poll in july that the "wall street journal" did, the commission showed 47% of the american people is against obama care at this point. support for obama care is down to 34%. then these stories come out. you get the sen
said about president bush invading iran in 2007. now president obama might attack syria. things are getting complicated. we'll have the story. also bradley manning on wanting to change his gender in a military prison. and thoughts on miley cyrus. >> caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone "the factor" begins right now. >> bill: hi. i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching tonight. the big event marketing the 50th anniversary of dr. king's "i have a dream" speech, the subject of tonight's talking points memo. all over the world people are honoring the memory of dr. king, an extraordinary speech on august 28th, 1963. in washington, people listened to a variety of speakers today with president obama as the headliner. president clinton described it as an observance of one of the most important days in american history. that's true. what mr. clinton and no one else mentioned there's today's event exclude black republicans and conservatives. all speakers were democrats. that was a glaring error, and does not indicate a desire for inclusion. most of the speeches were, however, u
time about syria and about the difficult decision ahead of president obama as he weighs whether to take military action. good morning, everybody. i'm thomas roberts. >>> breaking news. president obama is meeting now as we speak with top advisers at the white house and if the president gives the green light to strike syria, he could end up doing it without congress and without america's steadfast a y ally. 8 in 10 said president obama should get congressional approval before any military strike. and some lawmakers say the president hasn't made the case. >> the constitution is very explicit on this. when you go to war, congress must authorize this. both the president and the vice president, once upon a time, before they became in power, understood this. >> the brsh aren't comiitish ar. headlines "the daily news." david cameron's stunning decision not to join the strike after a no vote by his parliament. >> have you spoken to president obama yet? have you apologized to him? >> i haven't spoken to him since the vote on the debate but i expect to speak to him the next day or so. i don't thi
in 16 countries across the middle east and all ordered closed by the obama administration. the obama foreign policy effectively closed for business in the middle east. citing threats from the terrorist groups that the president once declared to be on the run repeatedly during his campaign for reelection. the obama administration ordered the closing of those 19 embassies and consulates throughout the middle east for at least the rest of the week. and that is based on what lawmakers and administration sources are calling increased on-line chatter amongst al qaeda and it al qaeda affiliated groups. fox news confirming tonight that enter subject conversations between al qaeda had and his counterpart in yemen led to these closures. thanks to the president's spokesperson, those terrorist groups now know the administration's timetable for reopeeing the closed outposts. >> our current affirmation suggests that al qaeda and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks in the region and beyond . and our information suggests that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks between
the time. lou: confident in her assessment that syria had already crossed that red line. the obama administration and responded. until a few moments later when she offered up this blatant contradiction. >> we still believe that they don't have the capability to use chemical weapons. that is not changed. again, looking into the facts on the ground. there's no reason if there is nothing to hide for the regime not to let the investigative team and. lou: what is going on? the statements tested department is not seem to know either way. president obama announced after that he has directed intelligence agencies to find out what happened. again, joining us now, fox news military analyst. let's turn first if we make to this confusing series of remarks by the state department in which they have one moment have a knowledge that they believe there is chemical weapons available to the president, he has used them and within moments the spokesperson saying that they don't know whether he has them and doubt that he does. even as the president says he is a signing that question to our intelligence
're in recess for another week or ten days. t there's no indication that the obama white house is asking them to come back into session. there's no guarantee in the house of representatives they would get a vote of confidence for a strike. there's significant skepticism. let's see how powerful this report they will be leasing. that could influence some of the people out there in congress. right now there's a lot of people saying hold off. >> congress is not in session until september 9th. they've been active already. some members of congress brie d ed on a white house conference call. congress wants a debate. they want the president to see authorization and they ain't going to get it, are they? >> no, they're not. if the president called back congress, there's the possibilities they would vote against him. i don't think he's very much interested in doing that. i think all of this is so much the overhang from the involvement in iraq. i think there's a feel, not necessarily about whether the united states can prove that assad has these chemical weapons. i think it's pretty clear that they feel
evidence and now, of course, what comes next, barack obama is now moving closer to military strike. "boston globe" also talking about a coming military strike. it looks like it's probably going to happen. let's get to news. >> top u.s. officials now say chemical weapons were used in da masses cas and the president is considering a limited military strike on select targets inside the country. yesterday u.n. inspectors visited the site of the attacks and though low expectations for what their probe will uncover, secretary of state john kerry says there is little doubt as to what happened there. >> what we saw in syria last week should shock the contents of the world. p it defies any code of more reality. let me be clear. the indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity. the reported number of victims the reported symptoms of those who were killed or injured, the firsthand accounts from humanitarian organizations, these all strongly indicate that everything these images are already screaming at us, is real
could strike again as president obama hold a meeting to weigh the options on a high-level strike in syria. we all await his decision as does the world. martha: we have new reports from the "wall street journal" that the white house is moving quickly on this because they have reason to believe syria is planning to launch another chemical attack in the country's largest city aleppo. wait wants to accomplish with action. molly henneberg is live at the white house leading our coverage. what is the white house saying? >> the u.s. has to get involved because the world community cannot leave a chemical attack or chemical attacks plural unanswered. but the white house says the goal is not to out of syrian president bashar al-asaad. even though the obama administration believes this is not the only chemical weapons attack by the regime this year. >> the options being considered by the president and his national security team are not around the question of whether chemical weapons were used in syria on a massive scale causing death and injury to innocents women and children. its many not w
to attack obama care because they want to hurt america. >>> a freshman, watch this, sinking an amazing half-court shot. that's only half the story. the other half of the story may be better. we'll tell you what his future will look like at that school. "fox & friends" begins right now. >>> good sunday morning, everyone. welcome in to "fox & friends," tucker carlson anna kooiman, clayton morris. >> good morning. >> we want to congratulate a new sports network. >> fox 1. >> find that on the cable dial. congratulations to them. they are kicking off. we wish them well. next year there will be fox sports 2. they will be two years old. >> i see. he'll be here all week, all morning for the next four hours nim. we have a fox news alert to get to. egypt braces for another day of bloody protest after security forces storm a mosque in cairo. protesters and armed men barricaded themselves inside. hundreds died in bloody street battles this week including the son of the muslim brotherhood spiritual leader. this as the egyptian government considered out laug the brotherhood just a month after it held pow
. it is a folly built on a fantasy that doing this is going to get the approval of the senate and barack obama. it is never going to happen. so you are going to shut down the government for no reason. yesterday mitt romney weighed in on it. >> the former presidential candidate told a group of donors that the plan led by conservatives would hurt national security. that doesn't make it easy for some republican lawmakers like north carolina congressman. >> this is what the tea party wants to know. will you vote with mike lee to defund obama care? yes or no? i want yes or no. no. >> we need to show the american people we stand for conservative values. >> this guy has probably voted to get rid of obama care 20 times. i mean, they take the vote every week. >> 40 times. >> they voted 40 times. so you now have this happening all over america. i said it the other day. i know there are stupid people on the internet and they have to do something. >> they don't like your pants. >> they are wandering the streets, going to get hit by cars or in mama's basement. rather than be in mama's basement writing stup
being with us, you are looking at president obama today, president obama choosing toot answer any questions on russian president putin. and the administration's consolation of a one-on-one meeting between the leaders next month -- cancellation of the meeting, president'sress secretary had a lot to say about president putin, russian leadership and without any awareness of irony what so ever, the important work that united states and russia should be undertaking. jay carney, highlighting how important engagement with russia is for the united states on a number of issues, despite cancelling the meeting with the man that white hou deems so critical to the resolution of those issues, carney at times used language that it was difficult to always understand his mning..@ >> we had a lot of fish to fry if you will with the russian, we have a lot of issues to engages withth the russians over. the president is disappointed as he sd, and i said, by the decision that russian madeot to return mr. snowden to the uned states. lou: carney confirmeded that putin's asylum approval for snowden provok
received our highest honor. we'll tell you his incredible story of bravery. >>> plus, president obama's likely nominee for new fed head. a major dog fighting ring busted and marking 50 years since this man and his message changed the world. >>> good morning, everyone. i'm betty nguyen. secretary of state john kerry says the evidence is clear. the man mouth human suffering undeniable. >> it defies any code of morality. let me be clear, the indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral on sce obscenity. >> ayman mohyeldin is live in cairo. >> reporter: the u.n. inspection team will head back out into the eastern part of damascus where they completed their first day yesterday. now as we were talking about it earlier, they did meet with eye witnesses, interview some of the patients that were being treated for alleged chemical weapons symptoms. they were also able to collect samples from in and around the area. it's not yet clear whether or not they're going to make their findings public, but a lot of people
intelligence. >>> kristen welker is in martha vineyards where president obama is vacationing. what are lawmakers saying to you about this latest threat? >> reporter: alex, good day to you. lawmakers seem to be on the same page. closing the 19 embassies was the right move because it pointed to the fact that al qaeda was planning either one large explosion or a series of explosions. here's a little bit more on that from congressman peter king. take a listen. >> the intelligence that i saw here was at least as powerful as anything i've seen since 9/11, probably the closest would be the liquid explosive plot out of london in 2006. but this was very credible. it was corroborated and spoke of a massive attack and to me was the right thing to do. >> now, alex, some republicans did use the closure of those 19 embassies to attack president obama's foreign policy center. john mccain making a point that the peninsula has gotten much stronger in recent years and also argue that it's an indication that president obama hasn't been strong enough in terms of combatting that growing presence and th
majority of them are part-time. can we take the war on success. avalanche of new regulations and obama care. more young americans are living at home. are you ready for the new normal under the obama administration? "varney & company" is about to begin. you know throughout history, folks have suffered from frequent heartburn. but getting heartburn and then treating day after day is a thing of the past. block the acid with prilosec otc, and don't get heartburn in the first plac [ male announcer ] one pill each morning. 24 hours. zero heartburn. >> we've got a terrorist threat update. at least 19 embassies and consulates will remain closed through saturday and that's due to what the state department calls significant and detailed ip tell against of possible terror attacks. and so far clues are pointing to al qaeda. congress is tooting its own horn for passing a bill that will cut the student loans and get this, the low rate only applies to students borrowing 5,500. or borrowing at 6.4%. and the estimates that the government will generate 51 billion in revenues and these are profits from stude
